I just downloaded all of the songs and...

 

how is the Enter Shikari file so big? The song video is 3:22, but the file (NDD) is almost 25 MB.  :blink:

 

Anyway, I think I'll enjoy the selection this week. Cheers!

Rat Race is fun, but it had some RR issues if I remember well? It can be also quite easy. It was long time ago, I don't remember.

Cholly on bass = 91%.  This will take a lot of RR to get my fingers up to speed.  I'll enjoy this week :-)

funny Fishbone tune

a solid alternate picking technic is needed. Also more easy on bass with plec and altpick

Yeah, on the NDD version RR works for the first (hidden) section, but then is frozen for the rest of the song. As is, the song should probably be treated like it has no RR.

 

On Alison Hell I did one playthrough, RRed the unexpected parts, then did this:

I was supposed to go to an art crawl tonight, but all my friends bailed one me. :cry: Guess it's time for some emo scores on all these songs I am only distantly familiar with:

Oh hey, nice pun! I get it! It's like Alice in Hell only it's Alison Hell. Lol! xD

 

I used to know this song, once, forever ago, back when I was a university freshmen. But now I am an old man, so this might as well be a sightread for me. The trickiest part is all those weird groove switches in the first few minutes, everything else is simple enough if a little speedy.

I was expecting something grittier after the last song we had out of these guys.

 

I love big thighs too, Fishbone, but you should probably pick better wording if you ever want to get close to any!

I'm sorry but we need to change the Rat Race intermediate song. I've cecked the DD version with the same issue in RR: only first section works, all others are out of order  :(

hahaha, you should watch the video to this song live in Bordeaux, many girls came on stage and danced happily to it, stage was full of ladys.... I guess they like it  :)

Ok, because of poor results and overall lack of skill @NoonyDeloony gets downgraded to Advanced. She would be forever remembered as shameful person... and then she'll make another charming video and we'll forget about that.

I don't know about that Costello difficulty. That's why it wasn't selected before, I just couldn't tell...

Pump it up only have 1 chord shape through the entire song. And only in 4 different places. I agree with rodman. its a 2-3 diff.

 

 

Cholly on the other hand is really hard for me.  I need to find that groove.

Always getting a miss for the slide during the A5/D#5 chords but other than that it was pretty awesome to play through the song, got some things to improve on definitely and will be working on it soon haha.

I think I disagree with the people who are saying that the Elvis Costello is solidly a beginner song. Yes, there's only one chord beyond power chords and the double stops at the beginning. But barre chords aren't especially easy, and many of the shifts are pretty quick, and some of them cover a large range. Even now, I definitely wouldn't get promoted out of beginner with this song, so at the very least it's not easier than the Joe Cocker song we had that week (which was rated a 3). I wouldn't call it a 5 either, though. A 4 seems the most reasonable to me, but I wouldn't object too strongly if you called it a 3.

 

Anyway, I'll try to put in good runs on each of the intermediate-and-up songs. Though I'll probably wait to try the lead on Alison Hell.

We should handle the difficulty ratings more carefully in general I think. I didn't played that song by now, but like @albatross213 said if there are lots of barre chords and also with extensions it would be not really a beginner song, and if it'd be advanced beginner, whats probably 3-4. I'll play this song later for sure and give my rating.
